Shrouded amongst the glitz and glamour of Resorts World Sentosa and clean beaches is a historical gem that has been preserved since the late 19th century.
Tucked away at the westernmost end of Sentosa is Fort Siloso, Singapore’s last remaining coastal fort. Its strategic position allowed soldiers during the war to have clear views of the waters and the surrounding area so that they could shoot down anything that was a threat.
Stepping into Fort Siloso is like taking a leap back in time; a time when life was much harder and peril-filled the streets of Singapore. By delving into Singapore’s rich history, we are reminded of the dark times that our forefathers endured. We also can understand how far Singapore has come since then and most importantly, we can learn to appreciate the safe and clean environment that we enjoy now.
The Shilin-inspired Night Market opens to the public for two weekends (from 19 to 21 April & 26 to 28 April 2019) at Grounds@Kranji, Singapore Turf Club.
This Taiwanese-themed street festival is held at a 200 000 ft² space with over 300 stalls and different vendors segmented into four zones: Eat, Shop, Play, Fun. Despite there being enough nosh, fashion, lifestyle and design goods to see, the event was generally underwhelming.
Brought to you by Invade Industry who also hosted Artbox Singapore and other flea markets in Singapore, you would expect the event to be better organised. The queue at most of the stalls are between 30 to 90 minutes. And there’s a long snaking line just to enter Shilin-inspired Night Market.
Just to be clear, the Shilin Singapore is a Shilin-inspired Night Market concept and not the actual Shilin Night Market from Taiwan.
